yuletides in the Briar Patch
It was an okay day. The morning was frustrating and it was sort of hard only seeing my folks in the morning. I know that my cousins have their own families to see and my sister and her husband aren't leaving Maine while Isabella (my new niece's name is Isabella Mae -- yeah, not my kid) is in the hospital. I know all this, but it was still a little weird.

I received some really nice gifts -- darkwolfie gave me a new book on motorcycling, and a Butt Buffer. No really, I wanted one, and I can't wait to try it out. Mom gave me a super new motorcycle jacket. It's exactly the same as my blue jacket, just pink. I fully expect evilnicola to try to mug me for it sometime, except that it'll be way, WAY too big, so in the end my pretty jacket is safe, and I can wear it at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, if it's cool enough. (This is not a hot weather jacket.) Dad gave me moto gloves, but they're back-ordered. I'll get them eventually; not really worried.

I gave darkwolfie a pair of winter-weight moto gloves, a clock to mount on the handlebars of his bike, a set of microphones and speakers for our helmets with a set of FRS radios, and a set of his own damn saddlebags so he'll stop putting stuff in mine. :-P

Dinner at his mom's house was weird, as usual. They're nice people, but we really don't have much in common with that side of the family. They don't quite get the weird, whereas my family tends to embrace the strange, which is awesome. That's okay. Everyone in our lives makes us who we are
whether we like it or not

It was a strange Christmas. I really miss the Christmases that we had when I was younger, but things change. Shit happens. I'll go to work tomorrow, and next weekend, maybe we'll have a date.

i feel: okay okay
